Carena KSM2

Traduction de Manuel M

If there is a KSM-2, it is because there is a KSM-1. Both differs only by visualization of the value of the diaphragm in the viewfinder of the KSM-2.

The two models are with mounting Pentax K, from where this K at the beginning of their name. They are semi-automatic cameras, whose measure of exposure is provided by two CdS cells. Posting in the viewfinder is made by means of three diodes (on the right side). In a very usual way, green indicates the correct exposure, whereas the reds indicate up and under-exposure.
The focusing is facilitated by a rangefinder with crossed fields with horizontal break, surrounded by a crown of microprisms.

These cameras are motorisables thanks to the Auto--Winder EX (recocking and non motor).

There exists also one Carena KS, more economic version, not motorisable and whose viewfinder does not comprise a rangefinder with cross fields.

The KSM-1 and KSM-2 are in black completion, whereas the KS exists only in chrome completion. The KSM-1 also exists at Exakta under the name of EDX-3, with the bayonet specific to the brand. It is about a Cosina manufacture.
